Prosthetic rehabilitation in a rare case of mandibular Mucormycosis with osteomyelitis

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Rohit Bhandari, Dr. Deep Shikha Tripathi, Dr. Shuchi Tripathi and Dr. Pooran Chand
ABSTRACT:
In this case report our main goal was to preserve the patient’s remaining teeth and providing a prosthesis during the healing period which will serve for both mastication and healing. Mandibular anterior teeth were lost due to osteomyelitis, leaving unhealed necrotic area. Curettage was done to salvage the remaining perfused bone. Use of a removable prosthesis with teeth on occlusal surface and silicone soft liner on intaglio surface, served the purpose of mastication and prevented the underlying operated soft tissues from further trauma. Major emphasis was given on keratinization of the soft tissues for preparation of a better foundation for placement of occlusal stress. Implant supported prosthesis was not opted for, to prevent the patient from the trauma of major surgical intervention. The removable prosthesis used in our case, served to fulfil the nutritional and aesthetic needs of the patient.
